Books and me

I just couldn't stop myself from writing this blog. So here it is......
I visited a library today. I did not realise how much i missed the books until i was there. Seeing so many books, surrounded by books of many of my favorite authors, a sense of euphoria took me over. I just couldn't stop myself from grinning. I was so happy. I am sure people in the library would have thought me a bit eccentric. But i didn't mind a bit. Nothing could banish the smile from my face. Thats the place books hold in my life. I'm the happiest when with books. It takes me to different places, away, far away from this monotonous world.
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers."
You can turn to a book whenever you want. Depressed??? read a happy book and cheer up. Happy??? read a great book and enjoy it. Angry and frustrated??? read a thriller and just let it out. Whichever mood you are, you can find a book to suit you. Such is the pleasure of reading. You can always forget whatever you have in your mind and get carried away to far off lands with the characters in it. So next time you have something going on in your mind, take up a book and chill out. Happy reading :)
Finally, some lines from a bibliomaniac:
"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."

PS: This might look boring. It actually is... But as i mentioned already, i just couldn't stop myself... So bear with it... :P
